Dr. Anthony Fauci may feel the bite from the show that the National Institutes of Health wants to spend nearly $2 million on more puppy experiments. NIH’s National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases allocated $1,836,453 in taxpayer dollars to test an experimental hay fever drug on mice, rats, and dogs, including 6-month-old puppies. Symptoms of hay fever, also known as seasonal allergies, include a runny nose and sneezing, according to funding documents recovered by the White Coat Waste Project.

The contractor carrying the tests out, Inimmune, declared that instead of dogs, guinea pigs could be used in one of the experiments.

Guinea pigs can be sensitized to ragweed, our primary allergen indication, leading to allergic symptoms similar to human symptoms (sneezing, mucus secretion, runny nose). This model is highly relevant for our project and would be established by Immune personnel using the University of Montana vivarium (fee usage) we previously used for our murine allergy studies. We have already discussed the possibility of doing guinea pig experiment with the UM vivarium manager,” the documents say. The possibility of buying “six-month-old puppies,” which would be exposed to allergens and used for testing, was proposed by Inimmune.

The White Coat Waste Project had previously blamed Fauci and the NIAID for using taxpayer money to fund a “wasteful and brutal” experiment on beagle puppies in laboratories in Africa, California, Georgia, and Maryland. The NIH has not responded to a request for comment.
